Recruiters should focus this year on getting to know the candidates they're trying to place and the job openings they're looking to fill, Howard Adamsky writes. They should also work to simplify decisions by boiling each one down to an "either/or" proposition. "Time wasters of any kind must go. Hiring managers who are not responsive must be coached. Candidates who you know will never be hired must be cut lose fast. Jobs that are not approved for hire should have none of your time," he writes.
